hosts.equiv rsh & SMB share access

I know this isn't supposed to work unless the share is public.  I'm
not concerned about security and want to do exactly that.  I have done
it successfully under Samba by using share level security and setting
guest_ok for the sahre.  What I can't seem to figure out is how to do
it under Windows XP Professional.  I've tried simple file sharing read
only and full acesss, regular file sharing with all read privledges for
Everyone, etc.  Does anyone know how to do this?
